History will be on the line at today's men's singles final at Wimbledon 2021 when Italy's Matteo Berrettini goes up against Serbia's five-time Wimbledon champion Novak Djokovic and we have all the details on how you can watch the match on TV or online.
In addition to being the first Italian male tennis player to make it into the singles final at Wimbledon, Berrettini is also the first Italian man to play in any Grand Slam final since 1976. At Friday's match against Poland's Hubert Hurkacz, Berrettini started off strong by winning the first two sets 6-3, 6-0. Hurkacz turned things around in the third set with a 3-7 win before Berrettini clinched the victory with a 6-4 fourth set. The last Italian player to reach a Grand Slam final was Adriano Panatta 45 years ago and he has acted as Berrettini's mentor since his childhood.
Djokovic, who is currently the world's #1 tennis player, also earned his place at the men's singles final on Friday when he defeated Canada's Denis Shapovalov 7-6, 7-3, 7-5, 7-5 in four sets in his 41st Grand Slam semifinal. Djokovic is currently the favorite to win today's match but Berrettini could make history if he ends up being the winner.
During his professional career which began in 2003, Djokovic has won the tournament a total of five times with his latest win at Wimbledon taking place in 2019 when he defeated Switzerland's Roger Federer in 2019. If Djokovic takes home another win today, he'll be tied with Federer and Spain's Rafael Nadal who both hold a record of 20 Grand Slam titles.
Whether you're rooting for Djokovic, Berrettini or just want to see history be made at Wimbledon 2021, we'll show you how to watch the men's singles final from anywhere in the world.
